(a twisted version of the White rabbit from 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' by Lewis Carrol)
It all came about because I was creating allot of rabbit characters for a company coming up to Easter and something just clicked inside due to the cuteness of the illustrations, and out of that glitch the Not so white rabbit was born. I am hoping to have an exhibition with other 'twisted' characters from the book.
Step 1: Materials and sketchs
I am not sure if this will be a useful instructable due to the lack of visuals for important parts like construction of body, head, jacket and waist coat.
I made this with a rough idea, what I wanted as a result there was no exact plan except a sketch to start with.
Shown here are the primary sketches which stared it all off and materials.
Materials in sections.
Art store materials.
